The Linn Klimax 500 Solo is a high performance single speaker power amplifier designed for use in multi- amplifier, multi-channel audio and audio/visual information and entertainment systems. Linn’s patented circuitry delivers 500W of clean, silent power with signal pitch accuracy from a cool running LP sized product less than 6cm thick, weighing less than 10 kilos.


Linn Klimax 500 Solo

The machined-from-solid clamshell construction of the Linn Klimax casework is a beautiful and unique design allowing a variety of options for music, home theatre and custom installation applications.

Several Linn Klimax Amplifiers can be wall mounted with V-Klip brackets where space is a premium, for example with marine applications. The compact case housing the Klimax Solo screens, protects and stabilises the internal electronics forming a heat exchanger that dissipates the heat from the amplifier circuitry. Inside are two electronically and mechanically isolated circuit boards, one a new Linn Silent Power Switch Mode Power Supply (SMPS), the other, the unique audio circuitry providing unsurpassed performance from a compact audio component.

In keeping with Linn’s typically elegant styling, a blue LED illuminates the front panel to indicate operational status. The Linn Klimax 500 Solo Power Amplifier is available from Linn specialist retailers and custom specialists worldwide.
